Treasures from the Brooklyn Flea
I had a whirlwind night in New York City this weekend. My friend Beth and I drove down on Saturday to celebrate our friend Danielle’s birthday in Manhattan. We stayed with Beth’s sister Amelia, who is an architecture student at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.
As a former RA, she had her pick of rooms. This is the view she scored (from a private balcony, too!):
Danielle’s party was dance-tastic (and I wouldn’t expect anything less from one of my Vegas buds!). We went to a karaoke bar and a club, both in the East Village. And that’s about as much as I can say about it to the general internet. 😉
On Sunday, Beth, Amelia, Beth’s college bud Matt, and I headed to the Brooklyn Flea, an amazing flea market in Fort Greene on Sundays. The building itself was stunning.
If I had had a wad of cash on me, I would have gone crazy — there were amazing prints of antique maps, wacky cowboy boots, vintage clothing, and creative, handmade jewelry.
Most of all, there were rings. I am CRAZY about rings, especially huge cocktail rings. Here are my favorites:
HOW AWESOME is this ring? The ring only hooked underneath the fingers!
Loved this one, too, of the tiger eating the finger. I need a good gold ring.
Fun cocktail ring.
This one was huge — that’s as far as I could close my fingers!
By far the most inventive — I loved these rings that were assembled from watch parts.
I’m conserving funds lately, so I didn’t end up buying anything for myself — though I did get a little gift for my sister. (No pics of it, since I haven’t seen her at home in days and haven’t had a chance to give it to her yet!)
I love New York, and now that I’ve spent some decent, substantial time in Brooklyn, I love it there, too!
